Americans, like the citizens of all countries, are taught incessantly from birth to revere their nation's founders. Yet, while our own Founding Fathers were--along with countless other Americans--certainly heroic participants in the revolutionary struggle of 1776, they were anything but heroes in 1787, when they established the ELECTIVE OLIGARCHY that the people of this country have lived under ever since. The U.S. Constitution's system of "representative" government was in fact meant to cement the domination of the tiny class of the very rich in American society. This was the explicit intent of the elitist Founders (the Federalists), as James Madison encapsulated: "The government we mean to erect is intended to last for ages. . . . Our government ought to secure the permanent interests of the country against innovation. . . . [It] ought to be so constituted as to protect THE MINORITY OF THE OPULENT against the majority." And it has does just that for over 230 years. The true heroes of the founding generation were the Antifederalists, who valiantly but unsuccessfully sought to steer the creation of the new nation's constitution toward more democratic forms. Samuel Bryan, a leading Antifederalist, warned that "The proposed form of government . . . has none of the essential requisites of a free government. . . . On the contrary . . . it is [the] most daring attempt to establish a despotic aristocracy among freemen, that the world has ever witnessed." Another Antifederalist, Benjamin Workman, described the Founders' machinations thus: "Ah, my fellow citizens, you have been strangely deceived indeed; when the wealthy of your own country assisted you to expel the foreign tyrant, only with a view to substitute themselves in his stead." As we sit here in 2021, having suffered along with the rest of the world the most despotic act ever perpetrated on the human race, namely the Plandemic From Hell--IMPLEMENTED BY "OUR" GOVERNMENT--we better wake up to the true nature of the political system installed by the Founding Fathers: a TYRANNY of "representative" lackeys working for the nation's (and now the world's) predatory plutocrats.
